How can we help you?
If you have any suspicions about your child's behavior:
- it seems he never hears and never responds to names;
- does not observe the world around and is not interested in the play of other children;
- it seems he does not know how to play with toys;
- other strange, unusual behaviors, etc.
Go to your GP or pediatrician and ask for a referral to a psychiatrist!
Only the psychiatrist can diagnose your child correctly.
With the diagnosis from the psychiatrist, come to our Center, along with the child.
Make an application for specific evaluation and interventions.
The staff of the Center will make an initial evaluation of the child and, together with the family, he will propose an intervention plan.
The staff of the Center will also make recommendations to related services.
